with Dr Paul Dawson, Head of Research at the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime

This talk is primarily intended for people working in policy and research, interested in crime, policing and social science generally, in the Greater London Authority area. Paul will explain the wide range of large data sets, routinely collected by the Metropolitan Police, to which he has access. The data represent a goldmine of information and provide a great opportunity for researchers in social science and public policy and beyond. Much of the data is public domain and covers not just the incidence of types of crime cut by numerous demographic factors, but also evaluations of crime and policing initiatives, public attitude surveys and visualisations. Paul will also describe some of his research projects on, for example, stop and search, mental health and the police etc. This is an opportunity to make contact with Paul and potentially start a collaboration which may be beneficial to both your research and the Metropolitan Police.
